This is why I don't kiss catfish .... 

There are a few simple rules when it comes to fishing.

1) Get a fishing pole, some bait and find some water. (Finding water, mind you, is easier to do in some parts of the country than others...)

2) Dunk the bait and catch a fish. (Also easier to do in some places than others.)

3) Clean the fish and eat it! (How easy this is depends on the cook.)

At no point in that simple plan does it say "kiss the catfish".  Yet, that's what this lady decided her son needed to do and it almost killed him!

(See, catfish don't like to be kissed and this one rammed one of his spines into the kids throat!)

Only you can prevent needless catfish induced deaths ... spread the word!
